PROJECT LOCATION

Chandler St. between Woodlawn St. and Leach St.

PROJECT SCHEDULE

June 2019 to April 2020

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Replace and relocate utilities within the project area, reconstruct curb and gutter, and reconstruct asphalt roadway with reinforced concrete pavement that has been widened to match the northen concrete section.

JUSTIFICATION

Roadway was beyond its useful life and constantly showed failed sections and potholes from the high use of heavy traffic such as school buses and trash trucks. Utilities were aging and in some locations located under the existing pavement so relocating and replacing them along with the road reconstruction is the most efficient use of time and money. Widening the pavement section to match the northern portion of Chandler St. will also help with the high traffic use generated by the schools in the area.

PROJECT UPDATE

The project is just kicking off and residents passing through this area should stay up to date with the traffic control plan to be informed of lane and road closures that may affect normal travel.
